The spooky 11:11 is baaaack.

Every so often, I start seeing the numbers 11:11. What’s really spooky is that I’m not the only one.

It started several years ago, and I wrote about it somewhere on my old weblog but I can’t seem to locate the post. It started with purchases that totaled $11.11. Or change from purchases. Then, it seemed like every time I looked at a digital clock, it said 11:11. I go through spurts like that every once in a while.

It’s happening again. At least with the clocks — in my car, my bedroom, the VCR. I understand that it’s likely that somewhere in my subconscious I’m telling myself to look at a clock when I sense it’s that time. But that doesn’t explain why it only happens every so often, with no logical reason why it should start again.

I’m an irreverent non-believer, which you might not believe because I love to conjure rituals and am fascinated by synchronicities — especially because everything in life really happens so randomly.

Some people are born into poverty and ignorance and some into affluence and privilege. Some get cancer and some depressed and some breeze through life full of joy and energy.

Yesterday, I relaxed for a couple of hours at a friend’s pool — gossiping, reading, book-reviewing, keeping cool and privileged in a manicured back yard of the lovely home that she got in her divorce settlement. And across the city and across the world, others sweltered, suffered, starved. It’s a crapshoot that we begin where we begin.

One one one one. The beginning number. 11:11. Supposedly it means that I’m on the right track. I sure don’t feel like it.

It’s spooky.

  1. My boyfriend is seeing the numbers 666 constantly and I am very worried. We are wondering why he is seeing them. Is there a reason some people see them and not others?

  2. I see the number 911 all the time 2 like jus tonight… i came upstairs and i looked at the clock and it said 910 im like yes i didnt see it tonight so i promised my self i wouldnt look so i looked and it was 916 and i was all happy and then i went downstairs 2 get my cell becuz someone might txt me and i look at the cell fone and guess wat time it is… 911..
    I see that number so much its annoying
    But does anyone no wat it means?????????
    If anyone does know please email me @

  3. I HAVE BEEN SEEING 9:11 for a year, i don’t jnow what ot means. Even at stores its my total or my change. Its giving me the creeps!!!

  4. after being comfortable with the 1111 occueance for some time it has started to other day a friend was telling me in one day it will be a one year aniversary to our common friends death, another 11. where i ran into him, his work, building number was 11. i woke up on the 1 year aniversary of our friends death looked at my time and it was 1111. his 1 year service was schedualed for 11 am.

  5. Hi There All,
    Well I have started seeing this as well! I think we can all safely say it is happening and it is does not appear to have a easy meaning.
    For myself I am seeing 1111 all the time. I am now recording when I see the number and what I am doing at the time – What was I thinking about and so on. From here I am hoping I will be able to draw some patterns.
    One thing I am trying not to do is to be afraid as I think it is probarblky a very special gift to have. I must admit I am pleased to see it happens to other people as I thought I was the only one!
    So keep track of when this happens and post updates if you have any patterns forming would be a good idea!
    Thanks and have fun!

  6. The 911 thing has been in my life for a long time now and i am determined to figure it out. Glad to see that there are others. To me, this must be a good thing and is only for those who see life in ways alot of the others do not. I think something is coming.

  7. Phew! Now I know I’m not crazy! Seeing this forum and all of the people having the same number 11 expieriences has made me feel much better although there are really no explanations given here as to why this occurs…
    It started to freak me out so much I consulted a quite famous psychic..although he had no answer either…
    Someone told me that when you see 11:11 you should make a wish…

  8. I see 11:11 at least once a day on a clock whether it be day or night. A fax I sent today went at 11:11 without realising. I thought maybe this meant something, Past life, seeing the future but it seems a lot of people have this happen.
    I found a site about encoded digital Messages

  9. It’s getting quite irritating seeing 9:11 on a clock anywhere. Man I had no idea that SO many people saw the exact numbers on their clocks as well. Not trying to scared anyone but is everyone sure nothing gonna happened on Nov. 9, (11/9) especialliy since Bin Laden new threat to the U.S?

  10. It’s been about 11 months (figures, huh?) and tomorrow is 11/11; this morning I was up at (yes, 5:11) researching this strange phenomenon, never ever expecting to find it to be so “normal!!” My thoughts have echoed so many of the same responses! (why is this happening, what does it mean, etc) I have no idea what makes me look at the clock – in the middle of doing and thinking something else – to find it containing an 11!
    I was relieved and enlightened to read about all the possibilities of what this means.
    The actual “introduction” to all this for me was when my daughter began seeing the 11’s in time, as well as triple numbers, which I now see also. Her experiences were 3-5 years ago, and she would always point them out to me. It was not until this past year that I began seeing it. I had to call her and tell her because it REALLY freaked me out. She, too, explained it as it was what it was .. and not to let it get to me, but to accept it. She said perhaps we had just intuitively, unconsiously set our vibrations to look at the clock at that moment every time.
    It has happened so much; I just smile when I see it. I told my daughter about my research into this and sent her some sites, and she now feels bad because it hasn’t happened to her in a couple of years.
    I belive it will – and that all of us are of a higher spirtual level – more tuned in and being helped by other spirits elsewhere.
    Until we learn more, let’s just smile and enjoy it.

  11. This is really interesting. I’ve been seeing 9:11 on digital clocks since about 1996. My birthday is 2-27-81, 3:27am. Another very interesting combination, with the odd man being 2, all my numbers have 3s embedded. 2/3^3/3^4, 3^1:3^3. (^ for exponent). The 9:11 number haunted me from the time I was about 15. Will check back here in the future…

  12. Last night my best friend told me that everytime he looks at a clock it displays 9:11 am/pm, it struck me that he would say that, because for the past five years my wife has been having the same thing happen to her. now I can share with them both, that they are not the only people having this experience.

  13. ok i have been seeing the time 9:11 for like a year now and i see it like more then once a day and knowbody knows why its really scary and i really need to know why i see this time everywhere please email me with an answer at PLEASE

  14. And I thought that seeing 333 was a biggie! I have seen 333 for many years. It first started with waking up in the middle of the night and the time would be 3:33. I now see 333’s everywhere, license plates, telephone numbers, clocks, etc. I received a license plate from my state with 333 in in (last 4 numbers are 3332). I didn’t ask for a personality plate.
    On Friday 11/12 I saw 11:11 twice. I was at work the first time (11:11am) just before lunch and was on the computer at (11:11pm) during the the second sighting. During the evening sighting I received a telephone call and checked the time because it was so late.
    I thought I was the only one until I told my sister about it and she said that she was seeing 333’s as well. Since then, I have tried to research this phenomenon. I’ve begun to believe that it is something that I will understand in time. It’s kind of like how Richard Dreyfuss felt during the movie “Close Encounters”. He kept building models in the shape of Devils Tower not knowing what it meant and it was driving him nuts until he saw the image on television. Hopefully I wont get to the point of uprooting bushes and tossing dirt and vegetation through my window.
    BTW, my birthday is 1/11. Be at peace all, the answer will come in due time.

  15. About 10 years ago, I would see the number 711 everywhere. It started after I broke up with a girl I was dating who worked at a 711. I wouldn’t see this number all the time but enough to make that ‘dumb’ connection but basically I chaulked it up to coincidence and eventually I quit seeing 711.
    About three years ago (before 9/11), I started seeing 911 everywhere and this occurance has just been more intense up to this day. I see 911 everywhere now – sometimes 4-5 times a day. I can’t express the relief of finding this site and hearing about other people with the same experience. I WAS REALLY FREAKED OUT BY SEEING 911 everywhere. A couple weeks ago, I saw it or heard it in a conversation five times in about an hour. I am also a programmer and I even saw it in a computer log dozens of times! I went to the hospital because I thought I was having a some kind of attack. That is the honest to God truth.
    I took this as a sign to stop some bad habits that I have and I am trying to be a better person. One more thought… it is interesting that only this day in age would it be possible for us to communicate our common experiences because of the Internet and Google search engine.
    Also with a number like 9/11, it would be easy for people to say that I’m just seeing it because it’s the universal emergency number and because of the horrible events of 9/11. That happens as well but I find that normal. What gets me are the astronomical odds for me seeing this number without any direct willingness of my own.
    I am so grateful that I’m not the only one.
    Thank you everybody…

  16. I have been seeing 1:11 and 11:11 and basically 11 with all other numbers for years. It scares me. I usually saw a prayer when I see it and because I see it so many times I say many prayers. I have worried that I am being obsessive about 11’s. I also have a license plate with 11 in the number. I just began to read about the experiences of others with the number 11. Interesting.

  17. Hey everyone. Anyone know what seeing the time 11:34 means. I see it mostly in the evening time but i will see it every now and then in the morning. I see it on any thing that shows time. Its actually kinda cool but id like to know exactly what it means

  18. Hi
    I am so happy to see that someone else has seen 911 everywhere.. Since the 9 11 attack, I see it everyday sometime 3-6 times in a day… I have seen it appear at some of the most bizzar moments. The worst yet was when I went to a local garage to get petrol and the women in front of me paid for some goods, drinks and snacks etc… and the bill came to

  19. I am from Scotland!!! I have also been seeing this 11:11 as well as 444 for many years!!
    I accept this as part of my my life!!
    Divine intervetion – it is angel watching over you.
    Feel blessed xxxx ^i^

  20. This is Deff something God is doing not sure yet but I have alot of fixing up to do in my life, But I see 911 all the time on clocks mainly, 3:11, 4:11, 5:11, 6:11, 3:16 alot!! I dunno what these numbers are about but everytime I wonder what time it is, It is always without fail on one of the 11 numbers! it is kinda scary but it is atleast i think a warning or a sign.

  21. I started seeing x:11 since 11 years ago. I always see 9:11, 11:11, 1:11, 2:11, x:11. I’m glad I’m not the only one seeing 11.

  22. 11:34 is assemble as hell in backwork. The number that everyone of you are seeing right now is suppose to be a guide for your life and you must fix it to prevent anything to happen to you in the future. You must have seen this number because something is asking about you. Do you ever have a
    1.Sleep Paralyze,
    2.Talking to Yourself,
    3.Knowing you can do something better than anyone else,
    fearing of something behind you when you were alone or when you enter the room
    4.Make up an imaginary person when you was younger or like talking to your stuff animal.
    5.Can’t sleep without a light on
    6.Never close your eyes when you sleep.
    7.Fearing something outside your house when there are many noises.
    One time at 5:00 am, I was waking up when all of the suddend my eyes begin to force me to go to sleep again; it like something was shutting my eyes.I then struggle to keep myself awake while moving toward the light switch. I manage to turn the light on and all of the sudden my eyes was open.
    you are chosen for some reason that I can’t even explain but only you can explain. Only you can find out the answer because this is real life and there is no one you can who you can go and beg for help.
    Also ask yourself why are you chosen to live in this world instead of the other. And what is your purpose in life.

  23. wow,i never thought this many people are having the same 9:11 dilema as i am. Its been happening for a few years now, ever since the attack on 9/11. Everywhere i go, the number 911 appears. Its been bugging me for a while, and im not too sure what to make of it. I heard that the numbers 11 mean accomplishment, hence 9+1+1 =11, but i have no idea why i keep seeing it. Someone mail me back, id like to know what this means…

  24. I have been seeing 11’s for months now, it started with 11:11, then 22:22, I tend to see 8:11 9:11 10:11 etc now and its never when I want to know the time, I just happen to look at a clock when I walk in a room or turn a computer on and its the time displayed, which I do a lot as I work in I.T.
    I went on a support forum the other day I read the posts until I got to the bottom and it said you logged in at 11:11, my work colleages think I’m freaky because they see it when there with me.
    I even started turning off my Microwave when I don’t use it so I couldn’t see the time displayed, the other night I turned it on to cook something and left it switched on, the digital clock defaults to 00:00, in the morning I decided to warm my breakfast cereal in it and when I turned to open it the time read 11:11, I was a bit freaked out by that one.
    My Daughters birth is recorded as 11:10 on 04/04/03, the time was taken from an analog clock, the time recorded was probably to the nearest 5 minutes, so it could have easily been 11:11, and of course the date 4+4+3=11.
    I’m so glad I’m not the only one seeing this, at first I thought I was going mad but I am starting to get used to it now.

  25. Oh my goodness! It is so good to know that I am not the only one who has been going crazy over this 11:11 thing! For the past few months, whenever I look at the time on a digital clock, it either says 11:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 or 5:55. There have been a few 12:34 occasions as well. What in the world is going on? Who’s got a clue?

  26. I have been seeing 11:11 and 1:11 and all forms of 1111’s for a very long time. I think it is some form of trigger. For a long time I thought it was a spiritual trigger, something to remind me of who I am and why I am on this planet. I am beginning to wonder what kind of trigger it really is though. There have been many wierd things in my life, sychronicities, coincidences… triggers are put there for a reason, by someone or something, to have a specific effect… I have to wonder what the triggers are and what there purpose is… and why others are experiencing them as well. I am actually workin with hypnosis to explore this and some other things… who knows what I will discover.

  27. Congrat to everyone that discovered that they are not alone. When I first starts to seeing this crazy numbers I thought I was being crazy or ill. But after 2 months later I decided to search for the ” info ” weather it gona get a good results or not. But guess what I found out that I wasn’t alone. Also I know how the rests of you got here, it eaither you are afraid or you were trying to find out what’s happening.

  28. Lookit people, 11:11 or 22:22 is nothing special. You see it because you are aware of it. You don’t discount it because you think it means something. Do an experiment. Every time you see a number, on a clock, on a receipt, in a lottery, etc., write that number down.
    You’ll find out you see other numbers more often than 11:11, you just weren’t aware of it!

  29. Hi there everyone,
    I logged onto the internet today to try and find an answer as to the reason why I see the same time repeatedly. 3:21 It has occurred as far back as I can remember. It fills me with dread everytime a find myself instinctively looking at the clock and I know what time it is. Am I going crazy? It means something, why 3:21 exactly and not 3:22 or 3:20 I’m glad that I came across your website today, I now don’t feel so isolated by this phenomenon.

  30. For about a year I have seen 1:11, 11 11, 111, 2:22, 22 22, 222 or 22 11 every day. I wake up at exactly 2:22 am. I walk in the room at exactly 11:11, I see these numbers on Lic. plates 222 maybe three cars in a row one after the other, this can happen a few times a week. On receipts, papers of all kinds, clocks everywhere. I have no idea what it means. I have a great new job that I love, I am a Reiki practitioner which I love also. Im happy in my life except financial problems right now. But I cant put my finger on the message behind these numbers. I have friends that think of me and see these numbers at exactly the same time. They call me to tell me. Wish I knew what it all means. I feel that Im on a spiritual path. A wonderful and beautiful path. I love life and what to learn, do and give all that I can. I hope that these numbers are a good thing. No one ever writes about their lives. when I read some of the comments I wonder how other people are doing in their lives and if there is any sychronicities. A thread that runs through all of us who see these numbers. Light to all. Denise

  31. About four years now I have been seeing the 11’s just.
    The best was after I cleaned a small digital “Millennium Countdown Clock” that was collecting dust on the TV. I didn’t pay any attention to the display until after I was done. The clock was never set properly to any synchronized time and was just ticking away. As I was about to place the clock back on the TV I looked at the display as it read 11:11:01 11:11:11.
    This solidified the insanity of seeing 11 everywhere and not being just my imagination or coincidence.

  32. is also spooking me out A LOT!!
    I’ve been seeing 1143 everywhere,and it refuses to stop!! I fear that sometimes I can’t get away from that number that is so desperately trying to tell me something……..But what??? What should I be aware of, and if I haven’t gotten it so far, why do I still see it all the time!!!The last time I looked at the clock it was 1143, and it doesn’t end there! Anywhere that there is an opportunity for a random number to will appear 1143…does anyone know what it means?? If so please let me know!!

  33. I’ve been seeing 11:11, 1:11, 1:10, 10:11, 11:01, 11:10, etc for the past 4 years. I see it at least once a day. From the barcode on the back of my shampoo bottle, to the split second I glance at the CD player as it has been playing for 1:11 min/sec. Matter of fact, I just saw it while typing this comment. It’s really driving me crazy because I’m the kind of person who needs explanation for most everything. Funny thing is, I don’t look for it. At least, on purpose.
    For some reason I know that 11:11 is a deadline that’s almost up. Like something is going to happen. A personal promise fulfilled or stolen. A drastic change made. For some reason, I think each 1 represents a year. It means…4 years from the time I saw it (in 2001). It’s almost like everytime I see it, I know the clock is ticking…like a countdown or something.
    Strangely enough, when I first started seeing it, I believe God led me to a scripture, Daniel 12:12. Which says: “Blessed is he that waits and comes to 1, 335 days.” Well, I’m no good at math, but I was compelled to break it all down and it turns out that 1,335 days is exactly 4 years…excluding all Sabbath days. This even includes the leap year day. (Also, the book of Daniel has supposedly been sealed through history until ‘the last days’. Could this also have something to do with it?)
    Has anyone else had any indepth thoughts on this order? I’m beginning to wonder, since so many of us are seeing it, if it is a trully significant message from God. A warning maybe? With the urgency of Sept. 11…only in much greater volume? I don’t know! Let me know what yall think about this.

  34. I am glad someone else is seeing this 9.11 thing, I thought I was going mad for a minute, with me, my girlfriend keeps calling or texting on my mobile phone at 9.11, many times she says my phone was busy and she was trying to call before, then in recipts, number plates, just all over.

  35. Whenever I look at a digital clock, I see 7:11 (am and pm). This happens about 5 times a week. It’s driving me crazy! what does it mean?!!!

  36. Silvana C
    You’re not alone. I haven’t been seeing 11’s like most of you but I have been seeing 43 for over 6 years now. I keep seeing digital clocks all times with the minutes at 43. I don’t even think about it and it’ll just show up when I look. Dates, appointments, license plates, reciepts, addresses, prices, tv, hearing it, books, you name it. Anyone else out there seeing #43?

  37. For about 30 years, since digial clocks became more common, I have been urged to check the time (for no apparent reason) and it has been 7:47. I am in England and today I was talking to a friend in Florida and mentioned it to her. So that I know what time it is with her I have my watch set to dual time. After the call I sat back to work and the felt inclined to check the time. It was 7:47 – IN FLORIDA! I then came on line to see if there were any similar experiences out there and here we are. Any more 7:47s out there?

  38. hi im 16 years old and i have been seeing 11’s everywhere. i loo kat the clock its either 6:11, 5:11, 4:11, 8:11 ecetera.. i see 11:11 also and when i was getting off of a plan frm arizona i got off of gate C11 and i see lisence plates with 11 in them. my phone number also ends with the number 11…im not quite sure what it means im just so glad that there are others who have sen them too:-) i would love to talk about it with someone email me thank u.

  39. I read two lines in a magazine about 11.11 then a few days later my mobile phone which has always worked, the clock on it stopped at 11.11 Of course I cannot find the article again. I live in apartment with the street number 11 but the mobile phone thing has really freaked me. Any good sites I can read?

  40. You know I belong to a forum of about 200 people who have the 11:11 experience..Finding each other was REALLY weird..We talk about lots of things including our ideas and therories behind the numbers…Some think its a dna code, others a message about end times from god, others aliens. spiritual accension and so on and so forth..Lots of different ideas and lively discussions…I really invite you all to come and take a look!!
    love and light,

  41. hi – i have taken 2 mins to look at this sight ….and REALLY what a load of BOLLOCKS!! you people all need to get a big fat grip!!

  42. I have been seeing 11:11, 9:11, and other master numbers such as 22,33,44,55 on my clocks. I’ve been on a spiritual journey since February of this year. I’ve done some research on this just as everyone else has. For a two week period in May, I saw 11:11 repeatedly. Now the month of June has been bringing me 9:11. I’ve definitely been opening up my awareness to God and his presence and finding inner peace, heaven on earth. I’ve been feeling so wonderful since February. Some of the books I’ve read are Conversations with God (Books 1-3) by Neal Donald Walsh, Deepak Chopra’s Book Of Secrets, The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success, the Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire, A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson, and the Final book, which i’m on right now which i recommend to everyone is A Course In Miracles. If you’re ready for a new world to open up this is the book that will bring it all to you. All your quesitons about life, and why things are the way they are, are all answered here in this book. Well it is great to see that we are on this journey. Peace and blessings. Nicole W. Los Angeles, CA darienew@HOTMAIL.COM if you have any questions or comments.

  43. I’ve been noticing the time 9:11 a lot lately on my car clock and my kitchen clock. I ran across your site when looking for others seeing 9:11. I know there is an obvious connection with both the emergency call number 9-11 and September 11th. My wife died a few months ago and I keep wondering it if is some sign.

  44. I just want to say I have experienced the 1111 experience and 1109. My grandmother was born on 1111 and my grandfather died on 1109. My birthday is 1109. My initials kak are the 1rst and llth letter of the alphabet. I see it on my phone, clocks, and license plates for instance (mine). I believe it is truly a message God is trying to tell us through angels. Some sort of change must be going to happen in our lives.

  45. for the last 5 years i have been seeing the 13 i see this number all the time i can wake up in the middle of the night every night and see this number.clocks ,speedometers ,cd players, cinama tickets ,hotels, plane seats one instance was i was inthe cinama with my freinds we had five tickets and my mate delt them out like cards and asked me to pick one i managed to pick the card with 13 on it 6 times, because my mate made me do this over and over again. i could feel the heat from the cards thats the only way i knew that was the right one.what the hell does this mean it seems more people see the number 11 than 13 is this so.nate

  46. I have been seeing 11 minutes past the hour for about 2 years now. It always happens when I’m not thinking about it; it’s when I randomly look at the clock. The funny thing is now my boyfriend is seeing them, too. This is what has us really freaked out. We keep thinking maybe something will happen (good or bad, hopefully good!!) at 11 minutes past the hour. It’s comforting to see that others have experienced the same thing, but what does it mean? Can all this be coincidence? Being a skeptical person, I try to find logial explanations for things, but this has been happening for too long now. Please email me with any information you may have come across. Thank you. 🙂

  47. Oh man, just like the past 3 months every time i manage to glance at a clock it’s 11:34. Hell upside down. I don’t know what it is. Can any one help?

  48. Wow until I came to this site i forgot that used to always see 911, but now that seems to have just stopped…
    But now all i c everywhere is 333 its kinda screwed up but hey watcha gonna do? I actually started noticing this after i saw some1s screeen name that had a 333 at the end. At first i thought it was just a subconscient thing where i would look at the clock everyday at 3:33 but then i realized taht i c 333 everywhere. Then again it doesnt really suprise me with the amount of numbers a person sees everyday. I wonder if i c other numbers like this all the time and just dont notice it…? I actually enjoy seeing it whenever i c it at amazingly improbible times it gives me a good laugh anyway… 🙂
